Code 2 for leg injury.
A fit-looking male is supine on the ground next to his car in the driveway, writhing in pain.
“I think I broke my legs!”
“Yeah! They hurt real bad!”
I can see that they plainly aren’t broken. I feel around. I touch patients.
“So what were you doing?”
“I was lifting weights at the gym. I drove home and couldn’t get out of the car.”
“You work out regularly?”
“Yeah. Help me!”
I bend his legs at the knees and push hard, stretching his quads. He screams. Loud. People on the street turn to stare.
And then he quiets down after 7 seconds.
“Oh! The pain is better now!”
“You had cramps, dude.”
